BSA Venture Crew 220
Founded in 2004. Meets 1st/3rd/5th Tuesdays of the month at 7 pm at Covenant United Methodist Church (CUMC) located at the corner of Wyoming and Wilshire, next to La Cueva H.S. in Albuquerque (8510 Wyoming Blvd. NE). Venture Crew 220 is associated with Boy Scout Troop 220 and Girl BSA Troop 220.
We are a co-ed group of youth, ages 14-21 (or 13 and completed 8thgrade), in the BSA Venture Scouting program. We enjoy many types of high adventure activities, which are planned and executed by the youth, with experienced adult advisors. These include backpacking Yellowstone, horse riding, White Sands by moonlight, Philmont treks, kayaking the Rio Grande, etc. Venture-specific awards (Pathfinder, Summit, Ranger, etc.) augment and build upon the traditional BSA Troop awards (e.g., Eagle Scout). Youth can be co-registered in both BSA Troops and in BSA Venture Crews, but can also join the Venture Crew without having been in a BSA Troop.
